Latinos -- Used!Update2: Mary Katharine has pictures from the DC rally. Check them out.
Update: Check out the WaPo's headline today! What I want to know is how are Churches reconciling the moral stand on abortion, gay marriage, and pro-family values with the values the event organizers promote? How can church leaders unite with those that stand against everything the Church stands for? Where is the church? Used--disconnected between the truth, and the Judeo-Christian worldview, and what is happening today. Illegal immigration is wrong, any way you look at it. How does a church pastor defend that?
That's what most of these crowds are! Do you honestly think that the average working Latino, with a minimal education, is really all that politically informed and involved? There are those that are--I know many of them. But look at the pictures.
Look at the pictures. These protests are highly organized, politically calculated, PR managed, opportunistic events set up by the extreme left and socialist groups--both inside the country, and with outside influence. Do you think that the rise of socialism in South and Central America would not have an impact within the US? This is so much more than just about immigration and open borders. Do you honestly think that a majority of Latino attendees at these events truly understand what is going on beyond their honest desire to stay in America and their fear of being deported? They don't. They are being used!
History has demonstrated that Socialism and communism operates on the ignorance and suffering of the underclass, and is opportunistic in its very nature. Socialism rises by appealing to the suffering of the poor! Then, to make things even more insane, you have Muslim and separatists interests in the mix! Do you think Latinos care about the plight of whatever cause these Muslim organizations are pitching? Do you think most Latinos at these rallies really want the South West of our country to be returned to Mexico? They don't. They are being used!
Do we honestly believe that these masses truly want what the left has to offer? Look at the research. Most of these individuals do not agree with abortion on demand--the Democrats are not on their side. Most of these individuals would not approve of legalized gay marriage--the Democrats are not on their side. Most of these left-wing organizing groups are firm believers in larger, more centralized government and in socialist values--the very same kind of governments most illegal immigrants are escaping from and the same kind of system that is distroying France, for example.
I feel so frustrated!! Why is it that Latinos forget the lessons of their past? They are pawns in the hands of socialists and left-wing groups--yes, and the Democrats who are just as opportunistic and enjoying the political profits of these events.
For those that read Spanish:
Pueblo, despierten!! Los Democratas no estan de su lado! Nada mas usan de sus dificultades para adquirir mas poder politico! Ellos quieren imponer sus valores morals y sociales. Los valores Democratas son valores anti-familia, y anti-fe.Sen. Frist, secure our borders. Then, we can talk. Then everyone might be more willing to listen to ideas and discuss solutions for the other complex parts of the problem. But first, close the borders! We do NOT want more open borders. What part of this sentence is so difficult to understand? Can you hear America shouting out in frustration and anger? Can you? Wait until election night--you will.
People, wake up! Democrats are not on your side! They only use your plight to gain political power! They want to impose their moral and social values. They are anti-faith, and anti-family values.
PoliPundit: The following Republican politicians, who would sell US citizenship to millions of illegal invaders, have permanently lost my support for any elected office:
President George W. Bush
Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL)
Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
Senator Bill Frist (R-TN)
Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS)
Senator Chuck Hagel (R_NE)
Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH)
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA)
Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM)
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
I donated thousands of dollars to these politicians when they were running for office. I urged PoliPundit.com readers to vote for them and volunteer for their campaigns. No more. They are agents of Mexico, not representatives of the American people.
The following Republican politicians have earned my support for any elected office:
Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO)
Rep. J. D. Hayworth (R-AZ)
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Senator George Allen (R-VA)
Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
In addition, all but 17 House Republicans voted for the strong border security bill in December; so they deserve our support. You can check if your Congressman is on the list here.
Few Democrats have supported strengthening America's borders. Those who have, such as Senators Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Kent Conrad (D-ND), are too far to the left on other issues to deserve our support. The one exception is Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE), who has been good on most issues, and has turned out to be a stalwart on immigration.
So, if there's a race between a Democrat and a pro-invader Republican, conservatives would be well advised to vote for neither. The Ohio Senate race between Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) and Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is one such race this year.
[Immigrants are] leaving Mexico because its corrupt and thuggish political culture stifles economic growth and opportunity. The people there are smart and hardworking, after all, and they tend to do just fine when they get here. They're leaving because being smart and hardworking is enough to get you ahead in the United States, but not in Mexico. And I suspect that if the Reconquista advocates somehow did get their way, and the Southwest United States became a new Northern Mexico, we'd soon have illegal immigrants crossing over into Kansas and Oklahoma for opportunity, because the Mexican political culture would have ruined things in Arizona and Texas just like it's already ruined them further south.Ultimately, the victims will continue to be the illegal immigrants themselves. They are victimized by a broken border that encourages and allows employers to abuse and pay lower wages. They are victim of a political system that encourages "victim" mentality, and profits from the dendence of the underclass. And most importantly, they continue to be victim of the corruption and injustice of inefficient governments they are trying to escape. The very least we can do is not extend their victimization with our open border policy and lack of enforcement-backbone.
Secure the borders.
Fix the corruption and inefficiencies in our current legal immigration system.
Enforce the law.
Continue supporting free trade and economic partnership with Latin America.
